Michael Phelps and his girlfriend Megan Rossee have apparently broken up. The Olympic swimming sensation, who has a record 22 medals and retired after the Summer 2012 Olympic Games, ended his relationship with Rossee, a model, because it wasn't going anywhere and he wanted to pursue other options, according to TMZ.com. The couple had dated less than a year and charted their relationship on Twitter. While they have not publicly confirmed their split, recent Tweets suggest they're no longer a couple. "Things happen for a reason. #notme," Phelps, 27, wrote on Twitter Monday. Related: Split Decision: Breakups of the YearRossee, 25, later Tweeted »
